Yeah @sabergirl, I love that chair and I've wanted one for, well, forever.  Convincing Julie that it was a necessary purchase wasn't easy, since it cost more than my first two cars. Combined.  I think she's ok with it now, though.

Funny story, I bought the 50th anniversary edition in 2005(or 6?). I was living with my parents, I then moved overseas, and left the chair, after moving back in '10 I moved in w/ the wifey and before we had even had a chance to unpack we had cats..so the chair didn't make the move.. it's now 2019, and I've sat in the chair for 3 years out of the 11-12 years I've owned it. It's still at my parents place, they look at it and enjoy it..one day I'll get to sit in it again...not quite sure when..likely another 10 years.. Not quite sure where the funny is.. hopefully when relayed to J she will see how smart your investment was ;).

I stumbled across Paul Bommer, an artist who makes modern Delft tiles in Norfolk. If @Giles needs anything for the kitchen, he's got a load up on his Instagram page.

"Various Tiles"

There's one for @Seul...

"Piggy"

One for @Madame Buttonfly to ogle...

"Sun's Out, Buns Out"

And he even has a Trump in Hell tile. :D

The classic Chicago bungalow. There are tens-of-thousands of them, but this one is mine.

Love it. Are you on a corner too?

We have lots of similar houses in Denver.
Think it, be it.

We finally started on our garage apartment project today. It’s been a long time coming but things are actually moving. First order of business is demoing ~16’ of wall to make way for a steel frame and ultimately a pair of 8’ sliding glass doors. Trusses, Windows and framing package are ordered and we should be framing the upstairs portion within the next few weeks!

Nice!

I guess that means you're out of the purgatory of Austin permitting, so congrats on that.

Thanks gents!  Luckily, the guys I'm working were able to navigate the process and get our permit without too many problems.  The bigger issue was financing.  We looked at tons of different loan packages and rates but we ended up with a construction loan with a one time close refi and we're actually getting a better rate than we had before which helps.
